On this accelerated SECO-Institute IT-Security Practitioner (S-ITSP) course, you’ll gain the information security and security management skills necessary to become an IT security manager.

In just 5 days, you’ll learn to perform Security Managers tasks by completing practical assignments from creating a company-wide security framework to determining benchmarks for information classification. You’ll also learn to:

  • Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of application vulnerabilities and apply basic application hardening techniques
  • Translate relevant legal, regulatory and standard requirements and industry-best practices to a company-wide cybersecurity framework
  • Handle security incidents in line with incident management best practices, with special regard to the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA)

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the SECO-Institute S-ITSP exam and achieve your SECO-Institute IT Security Practitioner certification. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get certified at twice the speed of traditional training methods and get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.


The course is ideal if you are looking to make the transition towards an IT security management role; or if you are planning to continue your IT security learning path all the way to becoming a Security Operations Centre (SOC) Analyst.


Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified fast. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams**, accommodation* and meals*. No hidden extras.
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
